Associated Charities Renders ReportOf
What it Has Accomplished
In This City.
No Limit on Legislators as to Kind
And Character of Laws They
Shall Enact.
News Bureau of the Journal-Miner,
Room 203, N. B. A. Bldg.
PHOENIX, "Jan. 24. Governor
Hunt today issued his call for the
legislative session to be held Febru
ary 3rd and enumerated therein the
-various subjects of which the solons
may treat. It was the desire of the
executive and his call was fromed
with such in view that no limitation
should be placed on the legislature.
All of the subjects he includes in
the call, other than the list suggest
ed by Mr. Pattce, the code commis
sioner, Governor Hunt is desirous
of seeing considered by the legisla
ture but of course such action is not
compulsory and some of the sub
jects may not be touched upon.
Regarding the code which for
some time it was doubtful would be
included in the call, Governor Hunt
took the view that no harm would
be done in including it for consider
ation at this time and if the legis
4ature did not care to take up the
matter they would not need to. The
Governor therefore could not be
charged with limiting or attempting
to limit the scope the legislation at
the extra session would take.
In the list of subjects specially
enumerated Governor Hunt is inter
ested and desires some action upon
by the solons which he no doubt
will point out and suggest in the
message he will transmit to the leg'
islature when they arc convened.
Most of the special subjects enum
crated Governor Hunt had called
to his attention by urgent requests
from citizens of, the state who also
urged him to call the legislative
session that changes in existing laws
might be made or new laws enacted.
Another point in calling the extra
session was to secure legislation
which would, facilitate the work of
several of the new departments of
our state government. The great
reason for the session however was
that appropriations might be made
for the various state institutions.
New Legislation Suggested.
In addition to the subjects which
are enumerated for the consideration
of the code, forty-five in all, the
Governor made the following speci
fic enumeration:
General appropriation for state in
stitutions. An emergency law providing for
the registration of qualified electors
ta the state. The Governor feels
that since the women have been
given the right of vote, laws should
be enacted whereby they might reg
ister and become state voters at
A minimum wage for workers in
mines, smelters and reduction works
and other hazardous occupations.
A law making possible the putting
into effect the amendment to the
state constitution giving state right
to engage in industrial pursuits.
An amendment to the state con
stitution providing for abolishment
of capital punishment.
Construction of state highways
and roads: work of convict labor
thereon and payment of families of
convicts for labor thus performed.
An anti-Iobbying act, one of the
state constitution mandates the last
session of the legsilature failed to
agree on.
A law for the acceptance by the
state of funds appropriated to the
state by the national government.
A law providing for the removal
of the reform school from Benson
to Fort Grant. The old fort and
grounds which comprise 2000 acres
of land were given the state by an
act of Congress.
A law for the publication of state
reports ami statistics gathered by
state boards;
A farm for the state prison and
for the state asylum for insane.
A law ceding to the United States
jurisdiction over military reservat
ions. This law is proposed at the
suggestion of the United States War
Department, a law haying been re
cently enacted by Congress that no
money should be appropriated for
use at forts where the United States
had not been given jurisdiction by
state governments.
An appropriation of $450 to pay
the expenses of Arizona participat
ing in the ensuing conference of
state governors.
Appropriations which would en
able Arizona to make exhibits at
any proposed fair or exposition and
further for the expense of studying
and preparing reports of any socio
logical, industrial, economical or fin
ancial work or system.
A law providing against the sale
to or use by minors of cigarettes.
Provision for construction of
bridges across Colorado river, at
Yuma and San Carlos Creek and
Gila river on the Apache Indian re
servation. Provision for the revision and
amendment of laws of the state re
lating to rules for the construction
of statutes and general provisions
relating to the effect and construct
ion of statutes.
Provision for the publication of
the revised laws of the state.
A general revision of the laws re
lating to the state government and
powers and duties .of state officers
including the Arizona Corporation
Commission and other state boards
and commissions.
Governor Hunt has already begun
his work on his message to the leg
islators and it will probably be sen
to the solons on the second day of
the session. The work outlined for
the legislature is so general in scope
that there is little doubt that the
session will last fully sixty days and
it is possible even longer. There
is no time limit to length of the
session but legislators can only draw
their salary for sixty days without a
further legislative call. While such
it is not thought will be necessary
those who know Governor Hunt
best have no doubt he would not
hesitate to call a second extra ses
sion to complete any real work at
hand if such was necessary.

superintendent's office of the Pio

Drew, at present janitor of the court
house, is an applicant for that po
sition, it was learned yesterday from
trustworthy sources.
A strong petition favoring Mr.
Drew's appointment, was forwarded
to Governor Hunt yesterday, which
bears the signatures of the board
of supervisors of this county, the
democratic county central committee
the county attorney, and other lead
ing citizens in and out of the demo
cratic party. Mr. Drew's friends,
in short, are very energetic in his
behalf, and are enthusiastic over his
qualifications for the office. He is
an old-time resident, and knows the
wants of the Hassayamper of years
of association with them. The can
didacy of Mr. Drew is also streng
thened in democratic circles for the
reason that he is a son of a former
democratic governor of Arkansas, as
well has he been identified with the
party in this county for the past
third of a century.

Commenting on the matter Arthur
Hacker, member of the Royal Acad
emy, said that in his professional ex
perience he has never encountered a
physically perfect woman, but he
admitted the possibility that perfectly
proportioned women existed.
The Venus de Milo, according to
Mr. Hacker, is still the ideal at
which the modern woman should
aim, and gradually, thanks to out
door pursuits and discarding of the
corset, she is reaching that ideal.
"Many modern women consider
the waist of the Venus de Milo too
large." said Mr. Hacker, "but that
is entirely a matter of proportion.
The hockey girl and the golf girl
cannot play well in corsets, and in
this they may be unconsciously pav
ing the way to the attainment of the
classic figure, and incidentally to the

Dr. J. P. MuIIer, a specialist in
physical training, agrees with Mr.
Hacker that the figure of the modern
woman is gardually approaching that
of the classic beauty of long ago.
"In my opinion," said Dr. Muller,
"every healthy woman by proper at
tention to food and the observance
of the rules of hygiene can attain
the proportions of the Venus de Milo
or something very closely approxim
ating thereto.
"Within recent years our idea as
to what constituted the ideal female
figure has more or less altered. The
Venus de Milo represented an un
corseted age. Today, by way of
contrast, a smaller waist has come
to be regarded as the proper thing.
Viewed in the light of modern ideas,
even the Venus de Milo had her
"Recently a more common-sense
view has been taken of the matter,
and I, with others, who have been
brought into contcat with the trend
of ideas, consider that Venus does
not embody the correct proportions
aimed at by the specialists of today.

Mining men, and particularly those
operating on a small scale will be
interested to learn of an invention
that has been perfected by M. C
Sharpncck of this city in a reduc
tion plant, which is to be placed on
the market.
A model of the mill is on exhibit
ion and is of the rotary type. It
has two stamps and is propelled on
the same principle as a grandstone,
in fact the miniature has a great
resemblance to that utility. The
plant designed for practical use will
have two stamps of about 800
pounds in weight, with a daily ca
pacity of from three to six tons
per stamp. On cither side is a dis
charge for plating or concentrating
tables. Crushing and grinding the
ore is the principle, and tests made
on a small scale prove the adapta
bility of the mill to handle any char
acter of a yield.
The plant occupies a floor space
of only three feet by five feet, and
is portable. Small expense in oper
ating is one of the strong points
made by the inventor. The new
mill is to be patented immediately.
G. W. Hull of Jerome is the first
purchaser ordering one of the larg
est size a few days ago, after
making an inspection of the work
ing of the model.
